Tajikistan's GBAO Region – an Incredible Place

In the last few weeks Global Voices has published and republished several articles about the unlawful arrest of our community member Alexander Sodiqov. Those pieces are here, here, here and here.

But the Pamir region (known administratively as Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region, or GBAO) where Alex was conducting academic research is not all politics and persecution. 

The following video reportage, brought to Global Voices’ attention by its creator Miles Atkinson, is a useful insight into the natural, cultural and linguistic diversity that define GBAO. Thanks, Miles!
